"ROTTNEST ISLAND" Rottnest Island Tip by leanne_pearc

Rottnest Island, Perth: 40 reviews and 71 photos


It is an island off Perth that must be included into your plans. The only place where you will see Quokkas. Accomadation varies and book in very early. resturants and food places are on the island as well as boat cruises, scubdiving, bike hire, golf course, world war tour and more. Go there for a day trip or spend the week there. people go there for the sun, surf, beaches and as a summer holiday. There are no cars on the island. Transport is by bike. The island is basically untouched, bike tracks will take you all over the island to the secluded beach spots. If your a beach person this holiday is for you. Crystal blue waters. You just have to go less then 5 metres off shore and you can snorkel. The basin is a popular beach.

Directions: About 20 minutes from Perth by ferry. Ferry services.
Ferry ports - Fremantle, hillary's. I recommend going from freo as it is shorter distant and the fare will cost less.
